  • Cool place for maritime enthusiasts-if you are interested in the history of the British fleet-this commercial, military or passenger (Titanic)-is the perfect place to enjoy history, familiarize yourself with the points and the ability to see many ships (in the minus scale). The Museum further stresses the importance of Liverpool as a gateway to the world of the British Empire.

  • Fantastic place for everyone. My kids really enjoyed all exhibition, especially about WWII and Slavery. Would recommend!
  • Great museum and free. Loved the customs and excise section which had loads of displays of things like ingenious ways people had smuggled stuff into the country. We were tempted in by the Titanic display and that was really interesting as we hadn't realised the Liverpool connection.
  • This museum has multiple sub-exhibitions, so you can choose easily where you want to focus your efforts on. There are many varied subjects from the Titanic to smuggling and slavery. You will not be disappointed.
  • I spent a great time learning about ships and history despite I was not very interested in that matter. I recommend to visit that museum to any person.
  • Nice maritime museum, Lusitania info was really interesting as was most of the rest of the museum, but what the heck was that LGBT cruise area all about? The displays take one from wartime navies to cruises in the early 1900's in the White Star and Cunard Lines, then to LGBT cruises? Makes no sense whatsoever. Would give it 5 stars otherwise.
